๐ŸŒ. Native speaker of American English. Linux user. Familiar with several programming languages in the procedural, OO, and functional paradigms.

Link rot is evil. Archive everything. The keyboard is king. Correctness over performance. Canonicalize, normalize, deduplicate. Don't repeat yourself. UTF-8 > UTF-16. Use static typing: good for tooling. Re-use; don't re-invent. Correctness, then clarity, then concision and elegance. Play devil's advocate. First understand opponents' positions.

comment Is being called an ใ‚ชใ‚ฟใ‚ฏ derogatory?
@user1205935: The question is, are nerd (or geek) in English, largely inoffensive now, further along on the insult treadmill than otaku in Japanese?.

comment What is ใ˜ใ‚ƒ in ใ˜ใ‚ƒใชใ„?
@sawa: Are you sure ใ˜ใ‚ƒ (copula) and ใ˜ใ‚ƒ (in ใ˜ใ‚ƒใชใ„) are really different lexemes? Kansai uses /yaฬ€/ for both, which would be an odd coincidence if they're different.
